Plans to redevelop the 124-year-old former F. Mayer Boot and Shoe Co. building, now known as the Milwaukee Fortress Building, just north of Schlitz Park near downtown Milwaukee into a mixed-use development are moving forward.

Madison-based developer the Alexander Company has submitted a proposal to renovate the six-story, 193,988-square-foot warehouse at 100 E. Pleasant St. in the Brewers Hill neighborhood into 132 apartments with 25,000 square feet of office space on the first two floors on the south side of the building.

The $43 million project will also include a community room, fitness room, courtyard, and rooftop deck.

Adam Winkler, development project manager, said the Alexander Company plans on purchasing the property from Milwaukee developer Rick Wiegand in January, and will begin rennovation after the sale closes.
